I didn't even know that Honda made bikes, so I thought to myself if Honda makes good cars and motorcyles then the bike must be good too. When I received it I was impressed. The style and workmanship is beyond what I had expected. I have not seen bikes with suspension on the seat area and this one has it. My son and his friend went riding and when my son came back he told me how much he liked the bike and how he liked the suspension on the seat when going up and down sidewalk curbs. It's a great buy!
